#mythtv IRC Logs for 2003-06-04

00:00<bline>oh dear, I can't reproduce
00:00<bline>strange heh
00:01<bline>ok, reproduces, it's at the begiing of this recording, I'll try other recording
00:02<bline>weird that it doesn't do this further into the recording
00:02<thor_>Chutt, any thoughts on the DPI thing?
00:02<Chutt>not really
00:03-!-PeteCool [] has joined #mythtv
00:03<Chutt>i wouldn't have thought it would make that much of a difference
00:03<thor_>assume 100, assume 75, read it from running display and do a dpi_mult, or have the user set it somewhere
00:03<bline>wow, it's only this one recording
00:04<Chutt>a dpi_mult might be the best thing
00:04<bline>guess it's not that big a deal then
00:04<moegreen>thor_: shouldn't the user have the correct fonts for their resolution?
00:04<Chutt>moegreen, ttfs should be correct, no?
00:04<bline>unless you really want to see a stack from where it hangs
00:04<thor_>moegreen, X wants the text to appear the same "physical size"
00:05<thor_>it's points, not pixels
00:05<Chutt>doesn't debian default to 100?
00:05<moegreen>Chutt: ttf should be fine, but you have the option in your X config which fonts to prefer
00:05<thor_>if you do not specify the size of you monitor, X defaults to 75.
00:06<thor_>difference between 75 and 100 is fairly dramatic
00:06<bline>X defaullted to the first font path I thought
00:06<bline>xfs has an option in the conf for the default
00:06<moegreen>bline: right, but that is where your option to change it comes in
00:06<bline>moegreen: Yea, I was agreeing :p
00:07<thor_>same theme, same font, one at 75 dpi, other at 100 dpi
00:09<moegreen>thor_: I'm not saying it's not a problem, but can't the problem be solved by changing the user's configuration versus adding programming? Otherwise though, there may be some people who would like to scale their fonts (like the people who complain to the list that the fonts are too big on their 56" tv)
00:10-!-hfb [] has joined #mythtv
00:10<thor_>moegreen, yes the user can be told to change ... but theme designers (default theme = me) need to know what we're going to tell them to change to
00:10<vektor>Chutt: Debian defaults to 100dpi.
00:11<Chutt>that's what i thought
00:11<vektor>Chutt: In fact, pretty much every linux distribution does.
00:11<Chutt>also what i thought =)
00:11<thor_>xf86config defaults to 100
00:11<thor_>sorry, 75
00:11<vektor>thor_: I'd argue that's broken.
00:11<thor_>I'm not arguing one way or the other ...
00:11<Chutt>just that there's a difference
00:12<Chutt>and we should probably compensate for it _somehow_
00:12<thor_>just seeking consensus
00:12<vektor>Chutt: Is this with your renderer?
00:12<vektor>Or is this in Qt or something?
00:12<vektor>Since arguably, you should just have configurable font point sizes.
00:13<vektor>And let the user decide based on their DPI what is reasonable.
00:13<thor_>vektor, but in most themes, text has to fit withing pixmaps
00:13<vektor>Then it would be broken to specify it in points, wouldn't it.
00:14<thor_>ttf's only come in points
00:14<vektor>True, but they're for 72 points per whatever.
00:14<vektor>So if you use 72x72 DPI you'll get pixels.
00:14<vektor>So I guess you should force Qt into 72dpi mode if you're trying to fit it to pixmaps.
00:16<thor_>we can ask X for the DPI, try and compensate with a dpi_mult, but things won't round perfectly. When users complain, we can suggest that 100 dpi is recommended. Anyone have a problem with that?
00:16<vektor>Dunno how you'd handle non-square pixels then :)
00:16<Chutt>we could use setPixelSize
00:16<vektor>thor_: Doesn't sound 'right'. :)
00:17<vektor>goodnight :)
00:19<thor_>Chutt, I believe you may have hot on it.

01:33<Timon>I instansiate a new QTimer, but don't delete it
01:33<Timon>Did you fix that?
01:34<moegreen>Timon: didn't notice it, but i've just added a fix for it, I'll commit it on my next commit - heh.
01:34<Timon>heh, ok :-)
01:35<Timon>Now that I'm thinking more about it, I believe the same issue exists in libmythtv with my patch to add the channel history functionality

10:22<mdz>hah, I like how the abstract on the front page doesn't even mention 'mythtv'
10:22<mdz>while it has both 'tivo' and 'replaytv' in it
10:24<mdz>Krikorian estimates the parts for the device will cost a cool $1,200
10:24<mdz>Kulagowski estimates he spent about $600 on building his three DVRs
10:24<mdz>only a factor of 5 difference
10:27<Conaz>I'm just now getting to that part of the story :)
10:30<Conaz>At least the remaining portion of the article focused on MythTV

11:14<rkulagow__>wonder why the "tivo hacks" guy says it's going to cost $1200...?
11:14<Conaz>He must be paying retail for all his parts
11:15<Conaz>you get that new box all setup yesterday?
11:15<rkulagow__>could be. but $1200 is still a _lot_. interesting how he's got 35 offers but hasn't built one yet...
11:15<Conaz>I hear ya
11:15<rkulagow__>yes, pundit is now sitting pretty. finishing up the mythtv part of it today...

11:26--> Snow-Man( has joined #mythtv
11:26* Snow-Manfigures he might ask the right channel.
11:27<Snow-Man>If anyone's awake anyway.
11:28<Snow-Man>Anyone know how long an svideo one can have without running into problems?
11:28<Conaz>With how quick stuff gets done on mythtv I figure no-one sleeps around here
11:29<mdz>Snow-Man: depends on the environment I think
11:29<mdz>EMI etc.
11:29<Snow-Man>General 'can it do this' question: Can you rip DVDs to disk and play them with MythTV and has it got a nice interface for selecting pre-ripped movies and stuff?
11:29<Snow-Man>mdz: Hrmpf.
11:29<mdz>if wrapped around your computer monitor, probably only a couple of feet :
11:29<mdz>I can't type today
11:29<Snow-Man>mdz: The shortest I could make it I would estimate at around 20'.
11:30<Snow-Man>Which is from my basement through the ceiling up through the floor next to the TV.
11:30<mdz>Snow-Man: there is an add-on module with a simple browser for playing video files
11:30<Snow-Man>Might be able to make it 15'.
11:30<mdz>no interface for ripping as far as I know
11:30<Snow-Man>mdz: Hmmm, that might be good enough. I suppose I can always get off my ass and write up additions to it if I want.
11:30<mdz>Snow-Man: shielded coax should go farther
11:30<Snow-Man>Oh, I don't need an interface for ripping.
11:31<Snow-Man>mdz: I'm sure it would but I havn't got a coax tv out on my box.
11:31<Snow-Man>Besides, I do actually have svideo on my tv, so that'd be neat. :)
11:31<mdz>Snow-Man: run it though an old VCR :-)
11:32<Snow-Man>Actually, I don't know that I've got any equipment that could do svideo to coax.. I guess I might have an rca out tho too.
11:33<Snow-Man>Hrmpf, I'll have to drill a hole to run the svideo through but that might be short enough.
11:33<Snow-Man>If I could do it in like 15-20'.
11:33<Snow-Man>Going up the stairs would make the trip alot longer. :)
11:33<Conaz>You just doign this to test the video out?
11:33<Snow-Man>Hey, if I run into problems at least I've got rather fast access to the mailing list archives.
11:34<Snow-Man>Conaz: nah, I'm doing this so I can keep my desktop in the basement and the main TV on the floor above it.
11:34<Snow-Man>(in the living room)
11:34<Snow-Man>Just going to make my main desktop the mythtv box.
11:34<Conaz>Ah, so it is a perm solution
11:34<Conaz>What are you using for interface? RF remote?
11:34<Snow-Man>yeah, that's what I was thinking.
11:35<Snow-Man>Of course, I need to find one that's not using one of the freq's already used in my house.
11:35<Snow-Man>So that we can still use the remote when on the phone. :)
11:35<Conaz>My xbox finally shipped from, now if only my mod chip would ship
11:35<mdz>Snow-Man: having a cheap PC next to the TV works out much better
11:35<Snow-Man>It's a bitch though, my wavebird doesn't fucking work when someone's on the cordless.
11:35<Snow-Man>mdz: I'd have to buy said PC and I don't think it'd be that cheap..
11:36<Conaz>I'm hoping the xbox will be acceptable
11:36<Snow-Man>Not to mention the big magnets in the big speakers on either side of the entertainment center.
11:36<mdz>Snow-Man: ask rkugalow, he finds the deals
11:36<mdz>Snow-Man: you can definitely do it for cheap
11:36<Snow-Man>hrm, ok..
11:36* Snow-Manwould need to keep all expenses under the cost of a Tivo. :)
11:36<mdz>still do the encoding on the fast box, but use a cheap machine for the display
11:37<Snow-Man>Yeah, I figured that's what you were meaning.
11:37<Conaz>Hopefully next week I'll have some experience with the xbox as a frontend
11:37<Conaz>That was certainly cheap enough
11:38<Conaz>If not, I guess one of the kids will get an xbox :)
11:38<mdz>if the big speaker magnets don't disrupt the TV picture, a PC will probably not mind
11:38<Snow-Man>Well, the TV is farther away than the PC would be but I guess maybe I could try and find some other place to stash the PC.
11:39<Snow-Man>Like under the entertainment center or something if I got a like 2U case. ;)
11:39<mdz>2U cases tend to be very loud
11:39<mdz>or very very hot, your choice :-)
11:39<Snow-Man>Maybe I'll just buy a long svideo cable and see how well it works first.
11:42<Snow-Man>Anyhow have a thought on how much disk space your average dvd takes up?
11:42<vektor>Think 5-7MB/sec on average maybe?
11:42<poptix>Snow-Man: between 4 and 9 gigs
11:43<vektor>So between 4 and 9 gigs or so.
11:43<poptix>Snow-Man: a typical DVD (the physical medium) has a capacity of 4.7 or 9.4 GB
11:43<poptix>(depending on if it's single or dual layer(or sided)
11:43<poptix>with a double layer double sided DVD, you can fit 18.8GB on a single disc
11:44<poptix>Snow-Man: mount the DVD, then use the 'df' command.
11:47<mdz>Snow-Man: of course, if you're transcoding it, you can trade quality for space

11:48-!-Drikus [] has joined #mythtv
11:48<Snow-Man>Hmm, ok.
11:48<Snow-Man>I doubt I'd want to drop quality but <Shrug> who knows.
11:48<-- WizFactor( has left #mythtv
11:49<Snow-Man>MythTV records at about 1GB/hour, right?
11:49<mdz>you can sometimes trade relatively small amounts of quality for big space gains
11:49<mdz>Snow-Man: it records at whatever bitrate you specify
11:52<Chutt>poor snowman
11:52<Snow-Man>Chutt: :P
11:52<Chutt>so complicated :p
11:52<Snow-Man>bah, just trying to figure if I'm gonna need another disk or not.
11:53<Snow-Man>Of course, I know the answer is yes I'm just trying to figure out how long I can limp on with just one.
11:53<mdz>depends on how good things look on your TV
11:53<Snow-Man>I suppose I'll have to find out.
11:53<Chutt>a tv is very forgiving =)
11:53<mdz>I currently have a 40G volume for mythtv
11:53<mdz>and I never fill it up
11:54<mdz>14G in use right now
11:54<Snow-Man>Hmm, I've got 49G free on my data partition atm.
11:55<Snow-Man>I could actually trim out alot of crap too, I've got like 3 or 4 copies of OpenLDAP trees, some copies of glibc and a bunch of other crap.
11:55<Snow-Man>I'm probably going to want to rip a bunch of video tapes and DVDs to disk tho.
11:55<mdz>one TV show will cost you 4 glibc trees, I think
11:56<mdz>depending on whether they're compiled or not
11:58<Snow-Man>Let's see, 630M of netfilter crap, 3.1G vmware install, 2.3G of 'debs' which includes glibc, openldap, sasl, perl and some other stuff.
11:58<Snow-Man>4.2g of other old junk..

13:34<thor_>In fact, I believe I predicted this =)
13:38<Snow-Man>So, I trust that those of you on the mythtv lists have decent mail servers, right?
13:39<Chutt>what are you going to do now?
13:39<thor_>Chutt, that question to me?
13:39<bma>Snow-Man: hah
13:40<thor_>Next 72 hours, clean up drawing code, fix some of the TODO bugs. Was the question about the next few days, or after 0.9?
13:40* Snow-Manis just harrasing people. :)
13:41<Chutt>oh, the question was to snowman :p
13:41<Chutt>not paying much attention here =)
13:41<Conaz>thor_: we appreciate the update anyway :)
13:42<Snow-Man>Actually it looks like the current bastard taking up room in my mail queue is a certain:
13:42<Snow-Man> 7BIT (Deferred: No route to host)
13:42<Snow-Man> <>
13:42<bma>Snow-Man: blackhole him :)
13:42<Conaz>oh, and btw: You've all ruined the TiVo for me :) I cannot live without commercial skip anymore...
13:43<Snow-Man>Though those damn MIT alum servers are having an issue again.
13:43<Conaz>The TiVo will be shipped off to my parents soon
13:43<thor_>Chutt, on the fonts ... I'm gonna assume 100 DPI for 0.9, and we can spec a slightly different theme.xml format after that to let designer specify pixels instead of points. That ok?
13:43<bma>tivo has commercial skip...
13:43<Chutt>yeah, that's fine
13:43<Chutt>bma, automatic :p
13:43<Conaz>Isn't that just hte 30 second skip?
13:43<bma>Chutt: how's it figure it out?
13:43<bma>Conaz: yea, but it works well enough for me
13:43<Chutt>works pretty well, actually
13:44<bma>Don't give me that garbage :P
13:44<Conaz>Oh, no, it isn't even close to acceptable now :)
13:44<bma>I'm technically curious
13:44<Chutt>blank frame and scene change detection
13:44<Conaz>It works great
13:45<thor_>Chutt, oh and I'm going to try and finish making the muth video File List do something useful in time for 0.9
13:45<Conaz>I hadn't used Myth since 0.5, so the latest cvs blew me away
13:45<bma>one thing I wish tivo did has was editing, so I could edit out commercials :)
13:46<Snow-Man>Can it skip an entire commercial break or does the user have to identify the commercials?
13:47<Chutt>snowman, usually does it completely automatically
13:48<Conaz>That has been my experience, sometimes they have a longer break between the commercials, but just press the Z key again, and away ya go
13:48<bma>unless you don't have a keyboard attached :)
13:49<Conaz>Well, press the remote button associated with commercial skip ;)
13:49<Conaz>either way, I'm hooked
13:49<Conaz>bah, stupid meetings
13:49<Snow-Man>Sounds pretty nice.
13:49* Snow-Manis gonna have to show it off if he gets it all working. :)
13:52<bma>if, if :)
14:12<moegreen>thor_: are you going to do the mythvideo 'video list'? I'm planning on fixing the cutdown function and adding it to the base class.
14:15<thor_>moegreen, yes
14:16<thor_>one thing ... browse and list are just two different ways of looking at the same set of data?
14:16<Chutt>list should be more directory based
14:16<thor_>or is list supposed to let the user specify what's browsable?
14:17<Snow-Man>I look forward to being able to step through the directories and movies I've got on disk and be able to play them easily with mythtv. ;)
14:19<moegreen>thor_: it should be a directory type browser - similar to the old school version, but it could use a playback looking widget with directories on the left and files on the right.
14:19<thor_>if there supposed to "do the same thing" (show all available movies), but one is flat with left right scrolling through the list and the other is a tree, then shouldn't the user specify which interface to use and then have one button to "Play Movies"
14:20<thor_>or should I just shut up, get it to work, and leave these questions for 0.10?
14:21<moegreen>heh. I think for now the two different ways will work

15:07<moegreen>PeteCool: I wasn't sure if you were talking about MythVideo and some of the manual & -> & stuff
15:08<PeteCool>alright, let me start over: I'd need to use those letters in my mythfrontend translation: é à, maybe others, how would I make those?
15:09<PeteCool>moegreen: I'm not up to mythvideo yet ;)

15:42<Chutt>all the .xml files should be in utf-8

15:42<Chutt>use qtlinguist or whatever it is for the translation files, though

16:48<thor_>Chutt, some very good improvements to mmusic (mostly GUI rationalization). Two issues: go back to accelerators even if ShowWholeTree = false, and (more importantly) still getting X Error: BadWindow out of SDL. This is happening about half the time
16:49<moegreen>thor_: your managed tree list never needs multiline capabilities, right?
16:50<thor_>you putting things in base UIType ?
16:50<moegreen>thor_: yeah
16:50<Snow-Man>mdz; I thought there were Debian packages?
16:50<mdz>Snow-Man: there are
16:50<Snow-Man>mdz: Like, for straight-up mythtv?
16:50<Snow-Man>Not in unstable yet?
16:50<mdz>Snow-Man: err
16:51<mdz>Snow-Man: the moment mp3 and MPEG-4 encoders are allowed in Debian, I'll upload it :-)
16:51<Snow-Man>oh, bah.
16:51<mdz>until then they're unofficial
16:51<Snow-Man>Stupid patents and licenses and shiat.
16:51<Snow-Man>Where they hiding?
16:52<Snow-Man>yay, it's apt'able too.
16:52<mdz>well of course
16:52<Snow-Man>hehe. :)
16:53<Snow-Man>You must answer "Yes" to the question "Should MySQL start on boot?"
16:53<mdz>Snow-Man: that defaults to "no" for some ridiculous reason
16:53<mdz>which completely breaks trying to set up a mysql database in postinst
16:53<mdz>I should file a bug
16:54<Snow-Man>Oh, you're the one who wrote the mythtv mplayer patch? nice.
16:54<bigguy>lo Snow-Man
16:54<Snow-Man>Geez, got a client and a server and stuff too, eh? Nice.
16:54<Snow-Man>bigguy: hey.
16:54<Snow-Man>web interface and everything, yeesh.
16:55<Snow-Man>bigguy: yea.
16:55<bigguy>I disappeared from irc for a few months and come back to find alot of people missing
16:55* Snow-Mannotes he's got mysql-server installed but it's not actually running.
16:56<bma>Snow-Man: sucka :)
16:56<Snow-Man>Oh, ffs, am I gonna have some stupid problem with mysql wanting to be on /var?
16:57<Snow-Man>mdz: Hey, how big does the mysql db get?
16:57<thor_>Chutt, bad X requests seems to happen on everything except Spectrum and Gears
16:57<thor_>and blank
16:58<mdz>Snow-Man: it's tiny
16:58<Snow-Man>alright, maybe that's ok then. :)
16:58<mdz>Snow-Man: 14M /var/lib/mysql/mythconverg
16:58<Snow-Man>Alright, now why does aptitude want to install alot more files than apt-get?
16:59<mdz>aptitude installs recommends by default
16:59<Snow-Man>I thought apt-get did that now too but maybe not.
17:00<Snow-Man>It's kind of weird actually.
17:00<Snow-Man>Things must be getting pulled in due to dependencies too.
17:00<Snow-Man>Oh well, it's a big computer, why not?
17:00<mdz>heh, weird to see recommends being implemented the way they were designed
17:00<bma>blockbuster should rent out the B5 season dvds, so I could rip them
17:01* Snow-Manwonders about mythtv-doc not being on the recommended list.
17:01<mdz>Snow-Man: reportbug :-P
17:02* Snow-Manjust installs all the myth packages.
17:02<bma>if they're unofficial, you probably wouldn't want to use reportbug, no? :P
17:02<mdz>Snow-Man: actually don't bother, I just added it
17:02<bma>Many Washington area residents may find their sleep interrupted by the roar of Air Force F-16 fighters tonight as the Pentagon conducts a 90-minute air patrol exercise to test federal procedures for identifying and confronting hostile aircraft, defense officials said yesterday.
17:02<mdz>bma: reportbug is smart about these things
17:02<bma>just what I need
17:02<mdz>the packages have a Bugs: control header
17:02<thor_>I dind't hear any
17:02<Snow-Man>reportbug will actually add the package kinda, won't it?
17:02<mdz>which causes bug reports to be mailed to me instead of the BTS
17:03<Snow-Man>oh, hah.
17:03<mdz>but so far not a single person has used it
17:03<bma>mdz: oh neat.
17:03<vektor>mdz: It's hard to get users to report bugs.
17:03<mdz>vektor: no, it's hard to get users to report bugs _correctly_
17:03<bma>mdz: well since I don't use mythtv you wont' hear from me :)
17:03<vektor>In almost all cases they try and find a workaround more than report it.
17:03<Snow-Man>Chutt: Write smaller programs damnit!
17:04<mdz>vektor: or else they don't encounter any problems, so you don't get any feedback. bastards!
17:04<Snow-Man>Espceially when they can't go into the archive and get downloaded with my mirror sync.
17:04<Snow-Man>mdz: Do I have to remove all the old mythtv source-installed files or just the ones listed by debconf?
17:05<mdz>bma: are you bma@d.o?
17:05<Snow-Man>'cause, like, I have nfc what's out there anyway. :)
17:05<bma>mdz: yup
17:05<Snow-Man>Yeah, he's that bastard.
17:05<PeteCool>mdz: you want feedback? here's feedback: Myth works great! =)
17:05<bma>what'd I do now?

17:20<bigguy>well I'm afk for a few hours. got things to do
17:20<mdz>Snow-Man: that means you didn't read README.Debian
17:20<PeteCool>Snow-Man: I wanted to see pictures of your baby =) But since I tried doing that, can't connect

17:20<thor_>moegreen, ok
17:21<mdz>Snow-Man: when you got that error?
17:21<thor_>I've got some stuff to put into uitypes.cpp. Are you done for the time being with that?
17:21<moegreen>thor_: I hope to be :
17:21<moegreen>derrr, :)
17:21<Snow-Man>mdz: eh, it might have been, but still. That error was from a script run from dpkg as it was going through installing stuff after I answered the debconf questions.
17:21<mdz>Snow-Man: because the install scripts never try to connect as mythtv, unless you told it that the db admin was 'mythtv' instead of 'root'
17:22<mdz>which would be a very silly thing todo
17:22<Snow-Man>Nope, didn't tell it that.
17:22<Snow-Man>It asked me and I left it as root.
17:22<Snow-Man>Setting up mythgallery (0.8-2) ...
17:22<Snow-Man>It was from mythgallery tho,
17:22<mdz>ah, that
17:22<mdz>that I have no explanation for, then
17:23<mdz>it reads the username and password out of /etc/mythtv/mysql.txt
17:23<mdz>which, if you didn't get any errors from mythtv-database, are the username and password that were granted access to the db
17:23<Snow-Man>Well, my guess is that it was run before the mythtv stuff was run to set up the user because I was installing them at the same time.

20:53<rkulagow>if you've seen a pundit, the orientation is narrow and tall; the MB is vertical. the riser card is at a 90 angle and the cards are at 90 angle to _that_, and so the cards are effectively upside down. problem is that there's not enough room in the case. for the second card. would fit if the card didn't extend past the top of the bracket, but PVR250's are taller than that
20:53<rkulagow>i've seen some of the new CX23881 cards are tiny; barely bigger than the tuner. those'll fit.

20:54<john>this sorta, sucks, while I was getting tv-out working my roomate was working on myth tv, and now he's asleep and I am trying to pick up where he left off
20:54<rkulagow>pundit is operational, has Mandrake 9.1 loaded. didn't have to install anything off the asus website like i've seen some of the redhat folks talking about.
20:54<rkulagow>(for the network driver)
20:55<john>thor_: can you help me then?
20:55<rkulagow>i'll finish installing mythtv tonight on it; spent the whole day configuring a firewall to replace the old linksys i had.
20:55<thor_>john, QMYSQL3 driver not loaded. means pretty much what it says
20:56<john>thor_: I searched for qsql because I thought it might be relivant, /usr/include/qt/qsql.h
20:56<rkulagow>so, did i miss anything? saw that we're now famous, courtesy of wired.
20:56<john>I think it's there it's just not loaded or running or something
20:57<john>I don't mean to ask stupid questions, but how do I get this driver loaded? is it a kernel module? is it just some service that needs to be started or what?
20:57<rkulagow__>john: did you read the excellent HOWTO document?
20:57<rkulagow__>=) for the regulars
20:57<john>my roomate set everything up, up to this point
20:57<john>I am trying to gather the loose ends
20:57<john>where can I find it?
20:58<rkulagow__>documentation link right off the website.
20:58<rkulagow__>thor: i should program a macro for that or something.
20:59<thor_>rkulagow, that would be a good idea. How's the pundit?

21:00<rkulagow>it's sweet. 1) it doesn't look like a computer, so it blends really well as a frontend with A/V crap. 2) it's _quiet_. cons: 1) case is _very very_ tight.
21:01<thor_>two questions (1) can you take the feet off and put it on its side?
21:01-!-bline [] has joined #mythtv
21:01<thor_>(2) does it look sensible like that?
21:02<-- g8c( has left #mythtv
21:11<rkulagow>well, let me check. hold on.
21:14<rkulagow>well, there's a tab on the foot that says "open" with an arrow pointing forwards, so i guess you could take it off.
21:18<thor_>without taking it off, is the bottom (which would become the side) finished?
21:20<rkulagow>thor: it's got lots of vent holes in it.
21:20<rkulagow>it's really built to be vertical, but if you don't mind the vent holes and can have them "hidden" then there's nothing that keeps you from using it lying flat vs. standing up.
21:21<thor_>would mess with the buddhist calm of my living room =)
21:22<thor_>looks like next one will be the Cool Master 620
21:22<rkulagow>wait, check that. there's not enough clearance for the door that hides all the front mounted ports and pc card, smart media, etc bay. if it wire lying on it's side it needs to be raised about 1/2" for clearance
21:22<rkulagow>"were", not "wire"
21:22<thor_>got you, thanks.
21:23<rkulagow>NP. now i just need to sneak it into the living room. =)
21:23<thor_>someone to run MIL interference?
21:25<rkulagow>MIL providing cover fire so the wife keeps her head down.

21:29<rkulagow>chutt: is the CVS server off, or did i forget my password?
21:30<Chutt>it should be on
21:30<Chutt>might be slow, though
21:30<rkulagow>(getting lots of connection refused messages)
21:30<Chutt>yeah, it's on
21:30<Chutt>least the light is
21:31<thor_>I just checked out a library (see factoid, above)
21:31<john>I don't understand, I wen't through the doc, looked like my roomate was using the same one, and this is where he left off when he went to sleep. I have the whole mysql thing set up and I loaded the mc.sql thing into it
21:32<thor_>john, but qt can't talk to mysql
21:32<john>is that a problem from the compilation?
21:33<john>or do I need to load something?
21:33<thor_>you need qt built with mysql modules ... (sigh) which distribution of Linux?
21:33<thor_>hang on
21:34<Chutt>or something along those lines
21:34<john>one sec.
21:35<john>ok cool
21:35<john>but I have a different problem now :)
21:35<john>couldn't connect to the backend server
21:36<PeteCool>john: did you start the backend?
21:36<john>lol... I am trying to figure this out
21:36<john>I didn't know there was a backend
21:36<PeteCool>mythbackend &
21:37<Chutt>read the docs
21:37<john>I think I am just so anxious to run it, that I am trying to cut the corners
21:38<thor_>john, also consider pouring coffee into your roomate
21:38<john>he sorta ticked me off
21:38<thor_>ok, battery acid then
21:39<john>he went off compiling source to install everything\
21:39<PeteCool>cutting corners won't help
21:39<john>without bothering to set up the install directories and stuff
21:39<john>this being debian, it would have helped if he would have used debian packaged
21:39<john>err packages
21:41<john>he found a way to get a mythtv debian package but by then he'd already installed qtsql stuff by source, and then the mythtv package said it needed the qtsql stuff so he's all I give up and the compiling source cascaded
21:42<john>so now there is shit that's not managed by any package manager all over the system, and not even in the proper directories
21:42<PeteCool>john: make uninstall in the source directories should help
21:42<john>err >:)
21:43<Chutt>you definitely don't want a hand-compiled qt in there
21:44<john>he just decided to use linux like a week ago
21:44<john>and he uses gento so he's all into compiling stuff

21:45<thor_>oh yes ... there are times when I'm not an idiot ...
21:46<john>I was just stating the facts to make a point however obvious they may have been
21:46<thor_>no, that has nothing to do with your thread, I just figured out how to implement something

21:49<rkulagow__>hrmm. still getting connection refused from the cvs box...
21:55<Thelonius>Chutt, have you seen that new software/hardware assisted encoding capability for ati AIW cards?
21:56<Chutt>aiw cards will not work due to crappy drivers
22:01<john>I love it when things work!
22:02<john>I am pretty new to linux, but I've spent a lot of time trying to compile good kernels, to adequately support my hardward, and I only just now realized how much time lspci would have saved me.
22:07<bma>ok, so the one-for-all ucr 6163 is a kickass remote
22:07<Chutt>bma, i have a urc-8800
22:07<Chutt>have for a couple years
22:08<PeteCool>Chutt, bma: as what do you set your remote, if you use them with LIRC: vcr, tv, sat, which brand?
22:10<Chutt>i just use the remote that came with my pvr-250 for now
22:11<bma>Chutt: this one finallyw orks with everything - dvd, vcr, pvr, boombox, tv
22:11<bma>so I can use one remote instead of 2 or 3 :p
22:11<Chutt>bma, that's exactly why i have mine
22:11<bma>Chutt: this one even has tivo buttons ;)
22:12<Chutt>turns on everything
22:12<Chutt>turns off everything
22:12<bma>plus it's nice and small
22:12<Chutt>all with one button
22:12<bma>not fucking huge like the learning remotes
22:12<bma>PeteCool: I don't use lirc
22:12<bma>i don't even use mythtv
22:12<bma>Chutt: plus, it was CHEAP. $17 at circuit city
22:13<Chutt>let's see, i think i spent $80 on this one like 3 or 4 years ago :p
22:13<john>I am looking at the video4linux stuff in my kernel, and I have a bt878 controller, but all I can see is the 848
22:14<bma>anyways, I'm happy :)
22:14<john>do I need a kernel patch or does the 848 support the 878?
22:14<bma>it was realy annoying for a long time because the dish remote didn't have a dvd option, adn the dvd remote didnt' work with my boombox (which the dvd player is hooked up to)
22:15<vektor>john: It's the same driver, the bttv driver.
22:15<vektor>It should be in the kernel from your distribution already.
22:16<vektor>You shouldn't need to build your own kernel.
22:16<john>I am compiling my own
22:16<vektor>Why would you do that, if you don't mind me asking?
22:16<john>a bunch of small reasons
22:16<john>I fell it more adequately supports my hardware
22:17<john>certain things I would rather compile in than leave as modules
22:17<john>and visa versa
22:17<john>but also because I can support a newer kernel this way
22:19<john>I started the habbit working on my ibook because it needed so many things that weren't mainstream
22:20<john>another example is that the kernel with my distro didn't have i2c-voodoo3 drivers

22:51<Snow-Man>nvidia README wrong about dual-head ability or something in my config?
22:51<mdz_>ah, I use the xfree86 driver
22:51<mdz_>I believe Chutt uses the binary
22:51<Snow-Man>Chutt wasn't being very helpful.
22:51<Snow-Man>He sucks like that.
22:51<Chutt>i don't use it in tiwnview mode
22:51<bline>I know something about it
22:52<Snow-Man>It's not twinview actually.
22:52<Snow-Man>bline: ?
22:52<bline>It works wuithout twinview
22:52<bline>but it's picky, you can't have other sections in the config file other than the ones it wants
22:52<Snow-Man>I don't think I do..
22:53<Chutt>he wants to have a normal desktop with mythtv on the tv out
22:53<bline>iI have that
22:53<Snow-Man>Can you put up your X config somewhere?
22:53<bline>mythtv is the second screen
22:53<bline>running under windowmaker
22:54<Snow-Man>Whatever, I just need the X config. :)
22:56<vektor>bline: Weirdass modes for your TV out...
22:56<bline>vektor: trial and error
22:56<vektor>I think you'd have done better to do it properly.
22:56<bline>actually, I think those were generated by some script
22:56<vektor>I think you'd have done better to do it properly.
22:57<vektor>Well, something with some plausible technical reason for what you're doing.
22:58<vektor>Like, 'I got this from the datasheet for the TV encoder chip found on my card', or 'given this mode, I have a 1-1 scanline-to-scanline mapping from the input to the TV scanlines'.
22:58<bline>Like I said, they were generated by some script. I can't remember the script now but I believe it was recomended by the nvidia README
22:59<vektor>They don't seem to make any sense. It's like you're trying to get close to what would be easiest for the TV encoder, but the numbers all seem 'wrong'.
22:59<bline>It was when I was trying to get different resolutions on this monitor.
22:59<Snow-Man>God damnit, same fucking thing.
23:00<vektor>Snow-Man: Post your X log where it dies.
23:00<Chutt>my cable is all crappy tonight
23:00<bline>vektor: Then I guess the program was broken, but my monitor is working correctly now so I guess it wasn't too broken.
23:00<Snow-Man>vektor: In a sec.
23:01<Chutt>snowman needs tech support
23:01<Chutt>he's kinda dumb
23:02<Snow-Man>Chutt: f u. :P

23:02<vektor>Snow-Man: And X isn't already running?
23:03<Snow-Man>vektor: Nope.
23:03<Snow-Man>bline: That would be the problem.
23:03<vektor>Snow-Man: Your NVIDIA driver is extremely ancient.
23:03<bline>my first thought was X is running
23:04<Snow-Man>Hrmpf, I could have sworn I compiled/installed a new one since 2802..
23:05<vektor>so that is printed in the code when there's already an entity in the list ? hrn what does that mean...
23:05<Chutt>wow, that is an old driver
23:06<Chutt>he should still update the driver, first
